SOS Big Red vs. Exocet Kona

We haven’t received the Exocet Kona Surfs in the US yet…prolly about a month out…but, we’ve hooked up
many happy sailors with Kona Styles

I have been asked basically the question of relative differences dozens of times…so I put a gallery of pics
together comparing the Kona Style with the SOS standup / wavesailing longboards…
I think the surfboard refinements of the SOS boards are pretty obvious…

The Kona is a sailboard…but, it definitely functions as a
standup board to do downwinders…and it can ride waves…

We shipped one of our carbon paddles to a guy in Sweden to make him the 1st beach boy surfer in
Sweden…and he got a Kona to facilitate that…

Sponsored by QuikSilverEdition.

“This race is the most challenging and prestigious of its kind in the world. A 32-mile paddleboard race across the treacherous waters of the Ka’iwi Channel, it is the ultimate measure of strength, endurance and agility. To inaugurate the event, Hawaiian will priests conduct a sacred ceremony in full traditional garb, sounding conch shell horns and blessing the race with ancient prayers. A celebration with food, live music by Titus and Melvin and an awards ceremony will await competitors at the finish line. Also, defending champion and QSE team rider Jamie Mitchell will be on site to sign autographs.”

Only the world’s finest paddlers compete in this event. They are respected for their achievements and inspire others to reach for success…”
